nothing we already know.
Porn spoils it much more
Seriously though, I can't tell you how many times I've heard girl friends say something along the lines of "I wish Jake was like *insert guy from sappy romantic comedy*!" It's ingrained in little girl's from childhood to watch Princess movies where there is a Prince Charming who is perfect and carries on though adulthood with these incredibly high standards that men would have to achieve.
I watched a movie the other day called "P.S. I Love You" that I had never wanted to see before but I just did and I even found myself for a split second thinking "OMG, he is the greatest guy alive!" and then thought "yeah...that guy not only doesn't exist but it would be stupid to dream he does."
At the same time a guy who watches too much porn (as anyone can see fom reading the Vag) tends to have a completely skewed view of women as a whole and expectations of a woman physically and expecially sexually.
I watch more romantic comedies than porn by a long shot
on the subject of altering people's perspectives on what constitutes a perfect relationship, I would say the movies have definitely changed the way I act in a relationship (for the better)
It isn't just that the characters in romantic comedies are unrealistic... it's that even if they were real, women wouldn't date them. There is a vast difference between what people think they want and what they are actually attracted to.
I think I'll agree with you there. Once women actually start to date one of these "romantic movie type" guys, they would get bored at how nice they are all the time. It's nice to have those romantic moments from time to time, but to actually date one of those movie guys would probably drive me nuts.
hold the fuck on.
In the other thread everyone's all "oh, TV doesn't influence relationship dynamics," but now you're saying movies do?
I watch a fair share of porn and a fair share of romantic comedies. I'm still afraid of girls though.
I haven't opened my mouth yet
But if you fall for this shit you are as stupid as pig shit and deserve a life full of unhappiness.
on a similar note, i think most romantic comedies create more AFCs!
i blame can't hardly wait and the wedding singer for filling my head w/ garbage!!!
i still love the wedding singer as a movie tho mwhaha
What do you mean by this?
As far as skewing their expectations PHYSICALLY? For some reason I doubt that. My standards really aren't that skewed physically. I probably have lower physical standards than most guys, cause I really don't mind if a girl has a few extra pounds, etc.
